Psalms Chapter 8 Discussion

    Psalm 8

    There is a cross reference with Matthew 21:16 in verse 2 of this Psalm. This surely outwitted the wisdom of man with the Pharisees. This verse would seem to indicate that all children are in the Book of Life until the age of accountability; perhaps by default being in the book of all the living. Ezekiel 18:20 states that the soul who sins will die; and children will not bear blame for parents sins. We are all born into a sin nature; but not all living long enough to understand the meaning of it. Jesus also stated that "unless you are converted and come to me as a little children you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven." This involves the following of those who are drawn (such as the immediate response of the first disciples when Christ said "follow me.") This involves TRUST for Christ to provide all needs; so we can realize that He who takes care of the birds of the air will take care of us ( Matthew 6:26).

    The animals with the rest of God's creation are mentioned in verses 6-8 here; and man's dominion a little lower than angels (v. 5) yet ruling over the animals and the earth (v.6) gives him a special place.

    There are many cares in this world; some of which we are responsible for such as elderly parents; wives/husbands and children. We are to provide for our needs by working. Ultimately; all things are for the Kingdom of God. It is interesting in light of the ministry Christ and the Apostles had through the 1st Century; and how they would preach the Gospel first; and whether lodging in a private house; through the dangers of the sea; or in a jail cell from time to time God preserved them. We see those such as in Phillipians 2:27 who almost worked themselves to death. Clearly; death was the normal end of their lives (except for John who they say survived being boiled in oil according to tradition). Such a focus on looking on Christ and not on this world; and dying to self surely is something to ponder in this nation today.

    Thank you for your reply it makes sense.

    I think you're referring the tribe of Levi. If so, Levi was a son of Jacob, who was also called Israel ( Genesis 32:28). You can see the names of Israel's other sons in Exodus 1:1-5. And then we read of Levi's sons in Exodus 6:16-19 and all these were appointed by God to serve Him in the Tabernacle ( Numbers 3:5-10), while the other sons of Israel had other appointments throughout their journeyings towards the Promised Land.

    Which trib do the levitate come from
  • Mild Bill - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    If you look carefully you will see there is a subtle play of words in what Alex is saying. The lie in the garden is proven in the admissions of Alex and Earl assuming deity. Be warned everyone, their teaching is heresy on display and spiritual blindness on their part. A little truth will never cover a great lie.

    Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

    Do men validate the lie of Satan in the garden and call it truth? Yes.

    Mild Bill, the Spirit grace us with understanding, when you take a kernel of corn and plant it in fertile moist ground it dies and is reborn a green growing stalk that looks nothing like the SEED that was planted. As time passes it puts out an ear that continues to grow and little kernels of immature seed are attached to the ear. When the SEED is mature the green growing stalk naturally dies, no matter how moist and fertile the ground is. The harvester comes and harvest the crop. The SEED that is harvested is EXACTLY like the SEED that was planted and when you plant one of the new SEED it's SEED will be exactly like the SEED planted. This is the multiplication process that the Spirit has put upon all things; whether they be natural plants or animals or Spirit beings, the process does not change.

    Bill in Hebrew there are no upper case or lower case when the scriptures says ye are Gods it simply Gods plural. Ya gotta realize that the good seed is the living WORD WHICH IS THE SEED OF GOD. Thats y he is saying to whom the WORD came it made them GODS Jesus said whatsoever a man sows that shall he reap and Jesus is sowing the Living WORD the very seed of GOD THUS HIS CROP ARE Gods plural, he will not have crop failure, As my word ( his seed ) cannot return unto him void but shall surely prosper in what it was sent to do which is salvation, eternal life. When Jesus said the Kingdom of God is gonna be with in you he was not kidding, we are gona birth a baby Christ the Son of Man,Mankinds fruit unto God via his seed th WORD. The good ground is our hearts where that good seed will be sown thus we will birth God via his good seed,thats y he is saying that which is born of the SPIRIT IS SPIRIT AS GOD IS SPIRIT. I will dwell in them and walk in them and talk in them and be their GOD AND THEY SHALL BE MY PPL, THE VERY kINGDOM OF God is gona be with in us sinners ALL B/C OF HIS BLOOD, HIS WORD.If any man hears my WORDS and keeps them my father and i will come and take our AbODE WITH THEM,So when he said ye are Gods he was telling the truth.Whatsoever a man sows that shall he reap, ya gota realize that Jesus is sowing the very seed of God in humanity. The field is the world. Thats y David saw the whole world at rest and full of his GLORY, I will pour out my spirit on all flesh Joel, thus the spirit of God is gonna be born in ALL of US which is the H.G. God ALMIGHTY. THE PROMISE,But 1 thing for certain is he will not have a crop failure, My word ( seed ) shall not return unto me void. If i belifted up I will draw ALL MEN UNTO ME. THANK YOU JESUS GBU BILL

    If you search the phrase "ye are gods", you will find it only three times. In each instance the g is small, that is, not diety. And in Psalm 82, "I have said ye are gods", those gods will die like men. Those men died as men and not as Jesus, who laid down his life that he might take it up again, as no other can do. In Isaiah 41 they do either good or evil, in John 10 Jesus points to the challenge Almighty God put to men who called themselves gods and wanted others to decide if a god does good or evil.

    If you study carefully, you will see the title god does not refer to deity. Children of God are his children, not gods, but saints.
  • Mild Bill - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    Earl, Alex is fabricating Jesus as a multiplication of God(something that came later in time), rather than him always being God, as is the Holy Spirit. Multiply is not the word to describe Gods plan of salvation to believers. God sanctifies, believers are sanctified and called saints, subservient to Almighty God. Presuming diety is fatal. The numbers of people decending to hell far outnumber believers, and a multiplication plan favors their situation, rather that the few that find the door to heaven. I believe Alex has erred and misspoken about the nature of salvation, because he see's saints destroying Satan, and not God himself. God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit have no beginning nor end.
  • Alex - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    GBU Earl Bowman i know you are a man of Spritual Understanding.Thank you for those scriptures.
  • Alex - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    My comments about was Jesus truly God the son,There are many scriptures that MENTION that Jesus was truly God the son as Hebrews 1 Unto the SON he says thy THRONE O GOD IS FOREVER and Ever. It was God Almighty that made this law that everything has to multiply after its Kind . But we see that Jesus ii able to reproduce after the God kind ( Spirits ). Thats y he is saying that which is born of the spirit is spirit which is the H.G. that is gonna be born in humanity the very multiplication of God, To whom the word came his Seed the living word it made them Gods thus he is able to reproduce God in humanity, He is able to propagate very GOD IN HUMANITY THE WORLD 27 TIMES the prophets saw the world in travail and birth pains all b/c of his seed the word the contents of the book in the fathers right hand. Jesus does not reproduce after flesh & blood , his seed is the living word thus he reproduces after the GOD KIND, THE H.G THE GRANSON THE BEGINNING OF AN ISREAL OF GOD, Christ was just his 1st born of many brethren, Thats y the sower will go forth to sow his precious seed in humanity that a baby Christ wd be born in US sinners The H.G. thats y the new birth is so important, its the beginning of an Israel of God. John baptised you with water but i will baptise you with the H.G and fire a heavenly birth by his seed the WORD. His seed results in a birth, a Child which is the H.G.THAT WHICH IS BORN OF THE SPIRIT IS SPIRIT THATS THE H.G. B/C I HAVE SPOKEN THESE WORDS/SEEDS SORROWS HAVE FILLED YOUR HEARTS A SPRITUAL PREGNANCY, THEN HE TELLS THEM OF A WOMAN IN TRAVAIL N BIRTH PAINS,Which answers to the woman in Rev. 12, her CHILD IS A KINGDOM CHILD,Her Child fulfills the prophecy that Christ wd be multiplied as the stars of heaven, Thats y Isaiah is saying when he saw the Kingdom coming unto US a child is born unto US a son is given, AS Jesus said unless you receive the Kingdom as a lil Child you will in no wise enter there in,Her Child is the Granson th H.G. TH PROMISE CHILD.
  • Mild Bill - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    By suggesting God can be multiplied you violate the holiness of God.Scripture always affirms he is unique, whereas, the pride of Satan to declare himself as god, has defiled the creation, and not supplanted God. I know where you learned your erroneous lie.
  • Earl Bowman - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    Alex, another witness, Zachariah 12:5-8 (vs) 8 In that day shall the Lord defend the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and he that is feeble among them at that day shall be as David; and the house of David as God, as the angel of the Lord before them.
  • Earl Bowman - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    Alex, the Spirit of truth, understanding and wisdom bestowed upon you will also be multiplied unto others, every man in Gods own order, the Spirit of grace and mercy be upon all, keep proclaiming the truth of the kingdom.
  • Alex - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    Hiya Bill nice to hear from you. let me explain that HEBREWS 1 tells us that Christ is indeed God the son,But unto the Son he says thy throne O GOD IS FOREVER and ever so we see that GOD WAS MULTIPLIED when MARY Gave birth,Jesus was the living WORD made flesh and blood and the living word is God as John 1 says, so Christ was the multiplication of God in MARY But he wants to be multiplied in all Men via his seed the Word.That was the great Promise i will multiply thy seed as the stars of heaven thus the multilication of very God in humanity via the seed of CHRIST THE LIVING WORD,tHATS Y JESUS REFERS TO THE H.G. as the PROMISE, WHICH IS SPIRIT, And that which is born of the spirit is spirit as God is spirit. Thats y Jesus said to whom the WORD came it made them Gods, Thats y the sower of that good seed will go forth and sow his precious seed in humanity that we might be Gods,If any man hears my words and keeps them My Father and I will come and take our abode with him meaning the gift of the H.G. WHICH IS the multiplcation of GOD, The Promise, The scriptures say I HAVE SAID YE ARE GODS PLURAL. Bill ya need to study a bit,without the multiplication of God there can be no Israel of God. Just like the multiplcation of abraham issac and jacob wihout the multiplication of Abraham there cd not have been a natural Israel, Thus the heavenly trinity of father son and H.G. has to be multiplied in order for there to be an Israel of God,Thus the sower and his seed,to whom the word came ( his seed ) it made them GODS. Thats y Isaiah calls Jesus everlasting father he is the father of the H.G.. simply b/c the H.G. is born IN HUMANITY by his Words which are his seeds ( his BREATH etc ). HIS SEED WAS HIS WORD HIS BREATH, HE BREATHE ON THEM AND THEY RECEIVED THE H.G. Thats y God Almighty refers to himself as Abraham Issac and jacob impling there has to be an Israel of God meaning the multiplication of very God via that good seed the new covenant the Words of God that are YET sealed.GB

    Alex you err, the creation never can become the Creator."For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.1Tim2:5&6 "Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else." Isaiah45:22. But you Alex say there is another, and another, and another, and another, etc.. Almighty God has no beginning and no end, the Alpha and Omega, and has no equal outside of himself, otherwise, that is not God.

    Good morning :)

    So do you think the kingdom at hand lives with in us?

    Gods kingdom is nigh? Is in ya? We rule and reign it? We are kings of our own right?


  • Alex on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    Comments by Alex about Psalms 8 But Jesus spoke many times about the Children of the Kingdom, thats what Psalms 8 is about,but it was hid,simply b/c its the mystery of the new birth that humanity should give birth to a baby Christ the son of man.Thats y the sower of that good seed will go forth to sow his precious seed in our hearts, initiating a birth of Christ in us which is the H.G. which is the Israel of God. The only thing that can destroy our enemy is a new innerman, a new spirit and a new heart which is a baby Christ that is gonna be born in humanity via his seed the WORDS . Thats what the babes and the suckling are baby spirits, baby Christs that are born by his seed the WORD in US . The H.G. HAS TO BE BORN IN US BY HIS SEED THE WORD. The multiplication of Isaac resulted in natural Israel, But the MULTIPLICATION of Christ via his seed WORD is the Israel of God. When he breath on them that was his seed his Word, He was propagating very GOD with his seed the word/his breath. Thats y he said b/c i have spoken these WORD sorrows have filled your hearts IMPLING A SPRITUAL PREGNANCY, the babes and the sucklings a baby CHRIST the H.G.MY LIL CHILDREN OF WHOM I TRAVAIL IN BIRTH TILL CHRIST IS FORMED IN YOU thats the babes and sucklings that are gonna be born in US OUR NEW BIRTH. No this has not happened just yet,It cannot happen till the book is opened the WORDS of the book are the seeds of the sower th new covenant A BIRTHING COVENANT thats y the woman goes into travail which is humanity.God so loved the world etc.The babes and sucklings are baby GODS the H.G PLURAL AS THE STARS OF HEAVEN THAT WAS THE GREAT PROMISE.Rememeber God swore by himself when he made that promise thats y i'm so obsessed with the parable of the sower and his seed etc and its gonna happen soon. Jesus was thinking about this when he was on the cross he was calling for Elijah to come and turn the HEARTS OF THE FATHERS TO THE children th babes and sucklings His children th babes and sucklings .gb

    The Apostle Paul quoted this passage in 1 Corinthians 15:27. Paul quoted it in much the same way that the writer of Hebrews did in Hebrews 2:5-9, showing that this promise of dominion is now only incompletely fulfilled among men. Yet it will be ultimately fulfilled in Jesus, the ultimate Man, and will be one day also completely fulfilled in His resurrected followers. In light of all this, it is a great tragedy when a man is captured and held in bondage by the things of this world. We were born to have dominion over such material things, instead of being in bondage to them. O LORD, our Lord, how excellent is Your name in all the earth: When David thought about how vast a dominion God had given to man, it made him praise God all over again. That this humble creature - humble in light of the majesty of the universe, humble in light of its present standing under angelic beings - should be given such authority is a demonstration of both the excellence and the goodness of God.

    Hello, if your question was genuine and if truly looking for others' input rather than a cute question that twists words then maybe I would have responded in greater detail, but my response already exposed the logical fallacy of the question. Take care.
  • Mild Bill - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    Adam-Have you been thinking of a sincere genuine answer?
  • Mild Bill - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    Madalyn, "As I understand it, we will not know each other." The rich man in hades recognized Abraham, whom he probably never met and Lazarus, who lived at his gate.
  • Mild Bill - In Reply on Psalms 8 - 3 years ago
    Yes,genuine question. In basketball it would be interference.
